The anticipation for Myhem at the Mid this week was at its highest since Montreal’s finest export Alain Macklovitch better known as A-Trak, Trizzy, one half of Duck Sauce, one half of the Brothers Macklovitch and Fool’s Gold Co-founder would be making his second stop on “The Great North American Club Crawl” for a little ole fashioned party rocking.
With the drink specials flowing, the mayhem ensued as Dj Trentino with his unorthodox signature style took over. As the night went on the crowd started to build up and GunLove hit the stage to get everybody hyped for the main event. As his set rocked the sea of people pouring in to The Mid, a push of people eagerly itching to get as close to center stage as they could to catch a glimpse of the legendary DJ & champion turntablist A-Trak.

No fancy pyrotechnics or wild lights A-Trak steps up to the mic with his signature fedora and leather jacket said “Whats up Chicago” and the crowd went bananas. For what seemed like two hours A-Trak played with the crowd as he scratched the record back and forth on the ones and twos. Track after track build up after build up there wasn’t a dull moment as the people were in tuned to the love being spun.
This was the first A-Trak show for a lot of the people in Chicago, including myself, and it felt almost surreal. Good people, incredible music, awesome sound system, great vibes and to witness mister front cover Billboard Magazine EDM master A-Trak made for an unforgettable night. This Myhem At The Mid will definitely go down as the best of 2012. Thanks to everyone at React Presents!
